No specifics are given on what Pakistan's foreign policy actually were or what relations it held with other countries. Pakistan's foreign policy are most certainly not dependent on Islamic principles of any kind (since supporting persecuted Muslims is not the same thing as following Islamic ideals) and neither was it "non-aligned" in the Cold War (without Pakistan's involvement the Mujahideen forces could not have ousted the Russians from Afghanistan; not to mention the spy plane bases given to US which led to the U2 incident). Frankly, your article is a farce. And the information is inadequate.

Ocean canot b placed n a plate or jar foreign policy of i.r.p. has several stages
1.engagement with the west to introduce itself to the western nations.
2. disengagement with the western nations.search for friends not for masters.
3. bilatralism.
pakistan foreign policy is 100% acording to the rules which are required for a state to adopt foreign policy.
n a few sentences or paragraphs it is dificult to covince an optimist.
